Identifying social roles in reddit using network structure

Cody Buntain, Jennifer Golbeck
2014 Proceedings of the 23rd International Conference on World Wide Web - WWW '14 Companion  
We demonstrate that the well-known "answer-person" role is present in the reddit community, provide an exposition on an automated method for identifying this role based solely on user interactions (foregoing  ...  To this end, we explore user posting behavior on reddit, a large social networking site comprised of many sub-communities in which a user may participate simultaneously.  ...  If so, can users who assume this role be identified by characteristics of the social network structure rather than with content analysis?  ...

Towards Modelling Language Innovation Acceptance in Online Social Networks

Daniel Kershaw, Matthew Rowe, Patrick Stacey
2016 Proceedings of the Ninth ACM International Conference on Web Search and Data Mining - WSDM '16  
In this work we demonstrate how such innovations in language can be identified across two different OSN's (Online Social Networks) through the operationalisation of known language acceptance models that  ...  These tests were also applied to different community levels within the two networks allowing for different innovations to be identified across different community structures over the two networks, for  ...  Again, through the use of topic-specific networks, opinion leaders were identified and assessed for their reach within the network [35] and ignored the dynamics of user roles over time.  ...
